Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Nice cottage in wonderful surroundings. Very friendly and helpful hosts. Pity about the weather, which stopped us exploring this delightful area as much as we would have liked... ’The Sussex Floods of June 2012’. June 2012.
  2. It was an amazingly tranquil location with lots of scope for appreciating nature and the country. The bonus of having access to teh swimming pool was what made the short break for my family, having 4 children sometimes makes for hard work but the pool relieved this!! The owner was very personable and child friendly and made us all feel very welcomed. I would recommend this as a couple or family escape and will be booking to take my family again. We loved it. May 2012.
  3. The building is very nice and quiet. One needs but definitely a car. May 2012.
  4. Cottage was very roomy. Larger than it appeared from the website. May 2012.
  5. We found the cottage peaceful and comfortable in a beautiful location next to a lake. The area is excellent for visiting National Trust properties and gardens with Ashdown Forest close by for walking. We thought it was a lovely place to spend a week, especially as the weather was gorgeous. March 2012.
  6. Morphews Cottage is in a very rural setting, a few miles from any main roads but consequently extremely quiet. It is very well furnished and very comfortable with everything that one needs for a short stay. Waitrose supermarkets are just a few miles away in Uckfield and Crowborough. March 2012.

  8. A very cosy property in a lovely part of the world. Dec 2011.
  9. Good location and lovely setting. Accommodation good but a separate shower would be appreciated, also more mugs etc so the dishwasher doesn’t have top be used so frequently! Dec 2011.
  10. Quiet rural setting, yet only a 10-minutes drive from Uckfield, a town that offers all the shopping,dining, etc. needed. Many National Trust properties and other sights in a 30-mile radius. Great for kids: Groombridge Place and Herstmonceaux Science Centre. Beautiful walks nearby. Regular commuter train service to London from nearby Buxted. Oct 2011.
  11. Cottage in very quiet, beautiful setting, with many tall mature trees, a pond with lillies and reeds beside the cottage (well shielded from children by high wire netting), farmland around and many walking paths, and narrow shady lanes. Pleasant spacious accommodation, not ultra modern but very satisfactory. April 2011.
  12. Quiet location in rural landscape. June 2010.
  13. Quiet location, in the middle of nowhere but close to everywhere. Lovely cottage with plenty of room. May 2010.
  14. Morphews Cottage provided very comfortable accommodation and we had a very enjoyable holiday there. It was in a peaceful location but was easily accessible to all the places we wanted to visit. The owner was very friendly and helpful and had furnished and equipped the cottage very thoroughly (probably the most thoughtfully equipped holiday home we’ve ever stayed in, and we’ve stayed in a lot). The bunches of fresh daffodils in several of the rooms were a nice touch. We’ll be visiting this area again and would consider staying at Morphews again. All in all a very good holiday experience! April 2010.
  15. Attractive grounds and "hideaway" location. Oct 2009.
  16. Very helpful owner. Lovely pool area and gardens. May 2009.
  17. A lovely cottage in a beautiful and peaceful setting. The owners couldn’t have been kinder and more helpful. We had a wonderful week and have booked the cottage for the summer holidays as well. April 2009.
  18. The cottage was fantastically furnished and equipped and the owner made us feel very welcome. We would definitely stay at this cottage again in the future and have recommended it to friends and family. May 2008.
  19. Delightful cottage with everything you could possibly need. Good base to get away from "it all".
